Hidden Buddha of Rakuyaji

For the first time since their creation in the Heian period (794-1192), the twenty Buddhist statues that have been preserved at Rakuyaji Temple (Koka City, Shiga Prefecture) were displayed to the public at the Tokyo National Museum in Ueno in an exhibit titled The Secret Buddha of Rakuyaji.
